Huge flavor. Great for sipping. Killer in margaritas. Big green pepper and citrus notes. Great all around and a good value for the proof and 1L size.

Very expensive, but one of the best XAs out there. Awesome nose. Flavor of stewed fruits, chocolate and agave. Huge finish with just the right balance of oak.

Sweet agave, whiskey, honey, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, smoke, leather, citrus and fruit. This is the extra anejo others are judged against, and for a price range of $140 to 160, this is well worth it.

Aroma : Cooked agave still fairly strong on this for an Añejo. There is also some dried fruit and oak. Unique herbal / dark chocolate combo I haven't seen before. Taste : Agave is still very dominant here. There is also some notes of oak, orange, and some black peppery spiciness. This is medium bodied and fairly oily. Finish : Long and somewhat hot and spicy with agave sweetness and mild oakiness.

Aroma : Cooked agave and vegetal, grassy notes. There is also some caramel, oak, and very light mint. Taste : Cooked agave, banana, and the same unique minerality you see in the Blanco. Some vanilla and caramel, and more grassy notes from the aroma. This is somewhat oily, and very light in flavor. Finish : Medium length with agave and caramel, and slightly bitter. This is another light bodied tequila. But the light flavor is not accompanied by any significant depth you might see in other brands. This is still fairly good though.
